The Sandman #4 - Jack Kirby art & cover

The Sandman v1 #4, 1975 - The super-heroic fantasy series allows for many surrealistic landscapes and creatures. Jack Kirby illustrates them all with relish. Certain scenes appear to have been inspired by Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, but executed in the artist's own unique way. Kirby's cover continues the theme of an endangered sleeping innocent, but seems annoyingly repetitive by the fourth issue. The first several pages, with their large panels and additional details, comprise the artistic highlights. This is number 4 of 6 Sandman issues with Kirby art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Kirby or Sandman issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist.
